    I like two girls that play pickle ball

    I like every shot here. People my argue that hinging the wrist for topspin sacrifices too much control, thus raising the margin of error. But I’m of the mindset that if you practice enough, you can perfect any shot. With that said, a good foundation to have for the CCTSFH is as follows:
    lock your wrist,
    crouch low,
    begin the stroke below the ball,
    lift with your legs,
    rotate your hips,
    extend your elbow right before impact
    and roll your shoulder through the stroke and follow-through .
    All this while maintaining a locked wrist.
    I think you’ll find that this gives a more stable stroke that gives far more control and lessens the margin of error.
    *the exact same steps can be applied to a backhand stroke.

    Great video. Thanks!

    I love your videos and surprised that these don’t have more views,



  5. Gina Hamilton on October 31, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    you make it look so easy…



  6. Logan Draluck on October 31, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    I like that lag behind forehand it looks like it could trick some opponents



  7. Jason Peery on October 31, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    This is an awesome video! How about a Part 2 with 5 more shots? I’d pay money for it

    Great video and I see you’re still using the Prince paddle. Have to say that paddle was another great tip from you. Appreciate all your detailed video’s

    That first one, be careful and know who you’re playing. The crew I play with is aggressive, you leave something shoulder high like that, it’s coming back at you with enough speed to sting.

    Excellent



  11. Elizabeth Heyenga on October 31, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    So helpful! I’m not going to share with my group yet – I spoon feed them. Now I’ll surprise them



  12. Zachary Exton on October 31, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    So, I know it’s Dallas, but what’s the name of the park/facility?



  13. Benjamin Leavitt on October 31, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    Could you do a video about the strategy behind doing an Ernie?



  14. Bwork 1 on October 31, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    So awesome!



  15. Daphne Chia on October 31, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    Most of the shots displayed works because the opponent is not returning any of the balls. Most of the shots can easily be put away in real play.



  16. Jeff Ginn on October 31, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    Thanks for the pointers!!



  17. Aloha Leslie on October 31, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    Thanks for sharing! I love your videos…well-done, simple, extremely helpful and immediately useable. 🙂



  18. Robert Jones on October 31, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    great explanation, thanks.



  19. Elizabeth Heyenga on October 31, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    Barrett – you have a new Prince paddle, what did you change? I bought the regular handle and really regret it now, and I’d get one a bit heavier. Love the paddle though



  20. Barry Sholder on October 31, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    great stuff thanks



  21. Benjamin Leavitt on October 31, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    I love this! I want five more 😁



  22. LatiNoble on October 31, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    Would you explain the difference between an “around the post shot” and the “Ernie”? I constantly hear people call the atp an Ernie. Also would you give situations where each is possible/recommend and the three viable executions of the Ernie.
